Mr. & Mrs. Harrell // Summer Wedding at The Island House

Back in June I had the absolute privilege of capturing Allie & Cody’s wedding day at The Island House in Johns Island, SC! The story of how I know these two and how they fell in love is kind of humorous, so brace yourselves. Before I was a full-time wedding photographer I worked at Trader Joe’s, which is where I met and became friends with these two. Allie and Cody also worked at Trader Joe’s, which seems to be a breeding ground for love stories. Their wedding is actually the second Trader Joe’s wedding from our particular store (shout out to Paula & Jared), and I know of many more marriages that have come from various Trader Joe’s around the country.

As my understanding of their love story goes, Cody had his eye on Allie for quite some time, but it wasn’t until Allie got a hug from Cody that she really reciprocated those feelings. Allie is a huge lover of warm hugs, and I must say (from personal experience) that Cody gives great hugs. After many warm hugs were shared and they worked several shifts together, their love for each other bloomed and eventually led to their wedding day this past June!

In other slightly humorous and coincidental news, Allie goes to law school with one of my past brides (Hey Bianca!) who also happened to get married at The Island House! Small world.

Thank you Allie & Cody for having me document such a special day for you two!

Mr. & Mrs. Rutland // Woodlands Mansion Wedding in Summerville, SC

Meredith and Gregg got married in June at the Woodlands Mansion in Summerville, and dang, it was so perfect.

Ever since I did their engagement session, I had been anxiously awaiting their beautiful wedding. Meredith has this giggle that is so contagious, and Gregg totally balances the whole relationship with his easygoing demeanor. They first met when Meredith was the “soccer mom” for the team that Gregg played on — you know, bringing snacks and being a cheerleader from the sidelines. I guess all of those orange slices and Capri Suns won Gregg over 😉

I can’t say enough wonderful things about these two. I have never in my career seen two people so gracious, so humble, so thankful, and so in awe of each other. To make their wedding day even more special, they got married in the same church that Meredith’s parents got married in thirty years earlier.

To Meredith and Gregg, thank you for having me document such a perfect day. It was truly a fairytale, and I’m so so so thankful for people like you.

Mr. & Mrs. Jackson // Wickliffe House Wedding

On May 28, Jenna and Jerimie tied the knot on quite possibly the rainiest day of the year. Although the weather didn’t go as planned, everything else came together for their wedding at The Wickliffe House. A huge round of applause and thanks to the team of vendors that pulled this event off!

I remember when I first met with Jenna she had a clear vision for her wedding day. The Wickliffe House was certainly the perfect place for it, especially since Jenna collects the  blue and white porcelain vases that the venue is already adorned with. For her decor, Jenna brought in her own collection of the porcelain vases to set on the tables, and had these beautiful lemon accents throughout! I’m really digging the incorporation of fresh fruit into floral arrangements, it gives the environment such a fresh and cozy feeling. In addition to these elements, Jerimie’s mom made these adorable moss covered dogs that were truly statement pieces. I even tried to convince her to make a beagle one for me 🙂

There’s something about rain that makes people party harder, so when it was time to celebrate, the dance floor was packed from the moment the band hit the first note until the grand finale. I had the best time watching their friends and families bust a move on the dance floor and dance like no one was watching. One of their guests even hopped on the stage and gave us a rendition of his favorite tune, tambourine in hand! If you’re on the hunt for a great party band, check out The Secrets.

I remember getting home after this wedding, setting out all of my rain-soaked gear on a towel to dry, peeling my clothes off that were stuck to me due to the rain, and thinking dang, that was totally worth it. Thank you Jenna and Jerimie for having me as your wedding photographer!
